1999 Civic HX for $1,080. Includes engine and transmission, but not wheels!

Some assembly required (the engine is bad. You are supposed to replace it yourself). I thought this was a crazy ad! https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...9274681305591/

Nope. From this one angle... the bumper cover is damaged, the pass window regulator is failing, the honda emblem is missing. Does the replacement engine even work? The price is not low enough for me. Take out the cost of wheels and delivery. What does that leave? $800.00

Is it a D16y5? Is it the correct transmission? Do they have all of the parts?

There are too many problems with this ad!

Have you seen this one, though? 55,000 more miles than mine, but the body looks better! https://ecomodder.com/forum/showthre...0-a-37149.html

Looks like some kid beat up on that one. Poor HX. Give the short geared EXes to the kids and save the HXes for Ecomodders.

At that point though why not put the money into fixing Chorizo? What is it again that's wrong with your HX that's making you drive the Accord?

I moved from the Phoenix area for a job. I had problems with Chorizo overheating, but did not figure out what it was, although I had a bad heater core, so I bypassed it. After I moved I realized that my radiator was cracked, but I was looking for a second job, and living near the Utah border, living at 5,300 feet, and only driving 1.4 miles each way to work, so I did not worry about it.

I then moved to Show Low, which is another thousand feet higher, and colder. I spent four hours shoveling snow today. However, I almost always drive further than 1.4 miles. I believe that it was April that I was driving seven miles to get CPR training so that I could start my current job. My car started overheating, I forgot that the radiator was cracked, and I pulled over to let it cool down, but I did not want to delay starting my new job, so I pushed on to the fire station, propped the hood open, took my class, and needed to wait a while to start working.

I blew the head gasket.

That would have been the perfect time to complete a large project, except that I was living off of my credit card until my new job started. Had I realized that it would take two months, I would have started applying to places like Subway immediately. I went to a temp agency, but they had classes on digging ditches, and the only jobs they had were further than the Phoenix area.

I bought the head gasket kit and went through the factory service manual and put together all of the directions for disassembly. I figure that I can put together the reassembly directions while I wait on the machine shop.

The problem is that it is now winter and while I live in Arizona, but it actually gets cold here, and we had over a foot of snow in the last couple of months.

We have not really had space to park in the two-car garage for months. I will try to make room before we go on trips because Mom does not want the neighbors seeing us load the car, but her 2008 Camry barely fit with all of her stuff.

I got a storage locker a few weeks ago and starting moving things into that. However, I have been trying to figure out how to maximize the space in my room, so I replaced my full mattress with a Tuft and Needle twin XL. I want a loft bed, so I can build a desk underneath, and do schoolwork in my room, but despite people insisting that major websites carry twin XL loft beds, I cannot find one for less than $800, and it does not seem worthwhile.

I have been trying to finish another project in the garage for two weeks, but everything should be good to go in the morning. Then I will move that out of the garage, and my Civic in.

I should probably brush the snow off of it again, as well as Mom's car, and shovel a path for each.

Some questionable HXes

There is one that looked clean except for the cheap aftermarket headlight, springs, and who knows what else. $2,400. Oh yeah, it needs a [$400] primary oxygen sensory. https://offerup.com/item/detail/649954610/

Wrong wheels, too.

This one seems like a parts car for $350. The ad is in Spanish and I am fluent in Spanish, but I am simply not sure what this lady is saying. Her car randomly died, they replaced some parts, the mechanic said "Bomb"--no, "Pump!" It is the same word!

It sounds like she cannot figure out what is wrong, but she kept mentioning the carburetor on a car that is definitely fuel-injected. There are not many pictures and I can only wonder why she shared what she did. A picture of it hosed off in the shade. A picture of most of the back. A picture of most of the dash with hanging wires, broken vents, and oh. A shifter.

A picture of the edge of the door. Why?!

It shows more hanging wires from the other end of the dash.

Maybe it would have some useful parts. The description starts seeming to say that it randomly died, but ends with "It runs."

$350 for a parts car? https://offerup.com/item/detail/656092216/

One picture of this garage-kept beauty for $1,100:


Manual with 125,000 miles, but they say it needs a new Crankshaft Position Sensor: https://offerup.com/item/detail/653806532/

Repair Pal says it would cost up to $411. I could buy a Civic for that much!

Buy both and hope the Spanish one has a good CPS?

The more expensive one has the right wheels.
